The OHSU School of Dentistry Class of 2014 has 88 graduates. Seventy-two students will receive doctor of dental medicine degrees, along with 16 advanced specialty graduates (endodontology, three; oral and maxillofacial surgery, one; pediatric dentistry, five; periodontology, three; and orthodontics, four).

“I am pleased to present the OHSU School of Dentistry Class of 2014,” said Dean Phillip Marucha, D.M.D., Ph.D. “This is a close-knit group of dental professionals who have not only demonstrated their clinical excellence, but their compassion and community-mindedness, as well. We are proud to count these individuals as our new colleagues.”

Fifty-two of the 2014 graduates (72 percent) plan to practice general dentistry, including private practice, associateships, group practices, the military, and public health). Twenty graduates from the Class of 2014, or 28 percent, will pursue advanced specialty training. 

Three of the 2014 graduates will remain in Portland for their specialty training, at OHSU School of Dentistry or the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Hospital.

Eight from the Class of 2014 have OHSU School of Dentistry relatives.
